Note that the link to the XPath specificaiton in xpath/package-info.java is the formal release that is different from the one in the classes. The later was a working release now requires a login [1]. The only difference in the formal release is that the error numbers in XPathException were changed from 1 and 2 to 51 and 52. We may consider updating to the formal release in JDK 10.

The org/w3c/dom/xpath/* classes all have the link to [1].  The package summary  should explain the difference between two versions i.e. XPathException spec difference as it includes an accessible link.

These APIs are supported @since 9.  They were not officially supported in the previous releases.
